Shibe Vintage Ale  | 3 /4.5 / 7

Crushable tailgate ale brewed in collaboration with Shibe Vintage Sports to celebrate their 10th anniversary. 2-row barley base with a choice blend of American and European hop varieties. Clean, crisp, enjoyable. The perfect pre-game. 4% abv

South Philly Neighborhood Pale Ale |  3 / 4.5 / 7

This American Pale Ale boasts a vibrant and refreshing profile, thanks to the generous amount of Cascade hops.  Golden amber hue with hints of grapefruit and subtle floral notes, with a generous amount of pine and spice.  5.6% abv

 

Prezbo  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

New school IPA brewed with 2-row, oat, and spelt malts. Spelt is a fun ancient grain similar to wheat. Hopped heavily with Idaho 7, Mosaic, and Citra. Crisp tropical fruit and dank with a hefty mouthfeel under a fluffy white head. 6% abv.

Zoip  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Baby IPA brewed domestic 2-row and oat malts. Hopped heavily With Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin. Fluffy white grapes, peach rings, and hints of orange pith and sour diesel. 4.6% abv

Pět Pils (16 oz can) |  7

Pět, meaning “five” in Czech, honors the first batch of Pilsner ever brewed by Josef Groll on October 5th, 1842, in the town of Pilsen. The original beer that gave way to what has become the most popular and highly engineered beer style in the world. Brewed entirely with Czech Saaz and true Czech pilsner malt to make this unabashed, unfiltered, and unrefined rustic Bohemian Pils. Lagered for many moons, Pět is brimming with classic crackery malt under layers of grassy spice, herbal tea, and a hint of lemon. 5% abv

Pětite Pils |  3 / 4.5 / 7

A riff on our standard Keller pils. This Northern German leaning small wünder was brewed with all continental pilsner malt and ample additions of Hallertauer Mittlefrüher and Select in the kettle. Brimming with light crackery malt, classic herbal spice, and waves of green tea, tall grass, and lemon verbena under rocky clouds of foam. Fermented low and slow with everyone’s favorite lager yeast. Crisp and clean! 3.8% abv

Tractor Lite  |  3 / 4.5 / 7
Light lager brewed with extra pale pilsner malt and deftly hopped with a blend of European and American hop varietals.  Champagne hued with gentle breadiness, with subtle hints of lemon verbena and white pepper.  Finishes with a clean minerality. 4% abv
Chadwick (nitro) |  3 / 4.5 / 7

OG Philly style porter brewed with a special blend of roasty malts over layers of 2-row, Munich, Vienna, and Maris Otter. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and fermented with our house ale strain. Rich notes of toffee, bittersweet chocolate covered espresso beans, and that classic English Earl Grey tea finish. 6% abv 

Smoked Dunkel  |  3 / 4.5 / 7
We take a traditional Munich Dunkel base and then add a little Bamberg twist with 25% beechwood smoked malt. Notes of hearth baked loaves of hearty bread slathered in Nutella with a light toffee sprinkle enjoyed while with the company of friends around a warm campfire. Just in time for BBQ season! 5.5% abv 
 
Cuvée de Bancroft  |  4 / 6 / 9
A fun experiment in how switching one or two ingredients in a recipe can drastically transform the profile of a beer. Brewed with the same grist of 2-row and Maris Otter as our beloved house beer, Bancroft Beer, but hopped with aged East kent Goldings in the kettle. We then pitched our RAF mixed culture blend, and allowed it to ferment and condition for 3 months before being dry hopped with fresh East Kent Goldings. The result is a completely unique experience compared to regular Bancroft Beer.  A bright lemony citric punch up front which lends way to strawberry and delicate earthy malt, with a bone dry finish shaped by our classic minerality. 5.5% abv
 
Seven (750mL Bottle) |  21

Our Seventh Anniversary blend perhaps exemplifies what we do here at Second District more than any other project we’ve ever worked on. A blend of old world techniques with a nod to modern experimentation, and a little whimsy thrown in for good measure. Seven began as a blend of several releases from the late summer of 2022. We took some kegs of Wee Buddy, an English Summer Ale; Apricot Helix, an apricot-tangerine hard seltzer; Zestimated Antler, a lime zest conditioned version of our Nelson Pale Ale; and Future Rustic, a Bière de Coupage, and blended them all into one of our RAF tanks and allowed them to mingle for awhile. Once refermentation was complete (from the mixed culture inoculation provided by Future Rustic), we racked it into oak white wine barrels that had previously held our 5th anniversary blend for a lengthy two year slumber. The transformation of the liquid over that time is somewhere along the lines of a citrusy barrel aged saison, if we had to put our finger on a “style”; A melange of trifoliate orange skins, rubbed sage, classic barnyard, with a dry zesty finish. Most importantly, it’s just a really fun sip. Naturally carbonated in both bottle and keg. 6% abv. Cheers to Seven Years!

Beautiful, strait forward cider from our friend in Central PA. 5.5% abv
